A few weeks ago (OK, I admit, a lot of weeks ago) I was invited to attend a wine and cheese soiree with fellow expat bloggers in Paris at O Chateau, a wine tasting bar that caters specifically to English-speaking tourists.
In addition to meeting fellow bloggers in Paris, the aim of the night was to test out a recently launched concept in France, a cheese delivery service Les Nouveaux Fromagers.
The concept is simple and novel. And to be honest, I was surprised to learn it hasn’t been done before.
This is particularly good as a gift for the person who has everything — and who loves cheese.
For about 20 euros, you get an assortment of four cheeses, the ‘creme de la creme’ so to speak, of products made from artisanal cheesemakers.
(Unfortunately, the service is only available in France for now).
While we noshed on goat cheese and Tomme with fig and olive preserves, I got to know a few like-minded expat who, like me, are besotted with the city and share their experiences on their blogs.
